ASUS Eee Pad Transformer First Look

This is the new Eee Pad Transformer, dubbed the ‘Transformer’. Currently it’s still a mock-up while the real thing is being tested in the secret underground labs (more on that later this month), but we’re told still it represents what the final production version will look like. It’s just missing the Nvidia Tegra 2 ARM CPU and Android ‘Gingerbread’ OS that will fill the insides. Yum. Get let me get some hot milk!

Packing the latest 10.1 inch LED-backlit IPS panel, the high-definition 1,280 x 800 display combined with Nvidia’s Tegra 2 ARM CPU affords full Flash 10.1 support, both bring the no holds barred ‘full web experience’, as they say. I’d imagine many will do as I do, and head to somewhere like Kongregate and get lost in one of their million Flash games. I hope you’re happy to have stolen oh-so-many of my hours, Kon!

The Eee Pad Transformer (EP101) can act just like an Eee PC netbook – it’s the same size after all – with a full keyboard and touchpad, or, pop it off the top and just take the ‘display’ portion with you as a tablet. Easy peasy.


ASUS Eee Pad EP101: webcam + hard, textured plastic back

The backside is lightly styled and textured like a few of the Eee PCs previously, while its slim 13mm thin design and rounded edges means it should slip into pretty much any bag without issue.

More to come on the technical specifics in time, but right now all you have to worry about is whether you want this, or the equally-funky-yet-slidey-Eee Pad Slider (EP102)?

What do you think of the detachable nature? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
